Louetta “Jane” Smith Campbell, 93, of Raleigh, passed away on Tuesday, November 1, 2022.
She was born on January 27, 1929, to Washington Duke and Janette Hendrix Smith, who preceded her in death.
Jane was a native of Asheboro, NC and graduated from Asheboro High School in 1947 where she met her future husband, Louis Henry Campbell, Jr. Their life together, and Lou’s work early in his career with Sears and Roebuck, took them throughout the southeast, ending in Charlotte, NC where they continued to raise their family. Jane received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Greensboro College, eventually working as the office manager for a large dental firm for several years in Charlotte. Jane later relocated to Raleigh to be close to her grandchildren, becoming a vibrant part of that retirement community at Abbotswood at Stonehenge. She enjoyed every moment of the activities and fellowship at Abbotswood. The staff enjoyed her quick wit and caring, appreciative spirit. The family wishes to extend their gratitude to all the staff at Abbotswood for their kindness and loving care given to Jane over the past years. She was loved and loved each one there. Most recently, Jane resided at PruittHealth of Raleigh, and is remembered by staff there as always having a sweet and gentle spirit. The family is much appreciative of the care and comfort provided to Jane in her final months. In addition to her husband, Jane is preceded in death by her brothers: David and Edward Smith.
Jane is survived by two sons: D. Craig (wife Donna) Campbell of Raleigh, NC; Michael Louis Campbell of Charlotte, NC; and grandchildren: Duke and Christy Campbell.
The family will receive friends Monday, November 7, 2022, 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm at Pugh Funeral Home - Asheboro, 437 Sunset Avenue, and a graveside service will follow at 2:00 PM in Oaklawn Cemetery with Pastor Bryan Nelson officiating.
In lieu of flowers, any donations can be sent to the “Associates Holiday Fund” for the staff at Abbotswood at Stonehenge, 7900 Creedmoor Road, Raleigh, NC 27613.
